Just a thought by Judith Martin-Straw

Just a Thought – Lousy Teenagers

Just a Thought – Lousy Teenagers

No, I'm not being metaphorical - there may be a lice outbreak at the high school that seems to be flying under the radar because - well, because lice. No one is particularly proud to announce they have bugs, but there's no reason to keep it a secret. The good news is that our kids are not having a secret outbreak of herpes or heroin addiction. It's a not-fatal, pretty painless, fault free [...]

Just a Thought – Love and Loss

Just a Thought – Love and Loss

There are few things that can crack a heart open like seeing someone's heart breaking. When the heart breaking belongs to your own child, the sound of that crack can be loud. Only the soft echo that follows is a reminder that this is the persistent melody of life; love and loss. Our little cat was very sick, and when that vet began using phrases like "very poor prognosis" and "immunologically [...]

Just a Thought – Politics in the Season of Peace

Just a Thought – Politics in the Season of Peace

It was May - very early in the month of May - when Goran Eriksson announced he would be running for City Council in an election scheduled for next April. In recent years, the idea that one had to 'come out early' for local elections has gone from being an aberration to being the routine. Sadly but not surprisingly, the local folks who are involved in our political process have taken this very [...]

Just a Thought – Editing Reality

Just a Thought – Editing Reality

For the second time in the history of Culver City Crossroads, we have chose to un-publish something that we published. The policy for Letters to the Editor holds that only letters from real people can be published, and correspondents must sign their real names. The letter was published, and retracted, on Tuesday, Oct 20, 2015. While the letter that was retracted seemed to be from a real person [...]

Just a Thought – ScoopsRus Email Hack May be Fatal Blow to Kent Campaign

Just a Thought – ScoopsRus Email Hack May be Fatal Blow to Kent Campaign

With a month still ahead of us, the school board race is getting ugly. Not the candidates, but their supporters. I got a call from a Madeline Ehrlich, herself a former school board member, telling me she'd gotten an email from Gary Walker - that was not from Gary Walker. Gary Walker is a long familiar local journalist whose main desk is at The Argonaut, but who has worked as a stringer for [...]

Just a Thought – Air Fair and the Plane Truth

Just a Thought – Air Fair and the Plane Truth

While it's traditional at Fiesta La Ballona to complain about the heat, this year there was a situation that garnered even more comments; the plane flying the Geico banner. It seemed to be constant, it seemed to be flying much lower than the legal limit of 500 feet, and it seemed to annoy the living daylights out of everyone. The plane over the park got everyone's immediate attention, but there [...]

Just a Thought – Going Dark

Just a Thought – Going Dark

I had called the theater to see if I could still get tickets for a date towards the end of the run. But the voice on the phone said, no, we close the week before that. "We'll be dark." I had to smile to myself - aaah, theater jargon, I've missed you - but after being disappointed about the ticket, I got to consider the phrase. Going dark - nothing on stage, the previous production over, the [...]

Just a Thought – Vote With Your Wallet

Just a Thought – Vote With Your Wallet

The long time Culver City landmark Tito's Tacos has been caught in a sudden gust of bad publicity over their antipathy towards CicLAvia, the big bike event this Sunday putting cars off the streets so bikes can ride free. While the controversy is only in regard to the owner's perspective that customers in come cars and a lack of cars will lead to a lack of customers, there's another more crucial [...]

Mind the Numbers (and TCB)

Mind the Numbers (and TCB)

Hello Readers! While Culver City Crossroads is always pleased to have more readers (new readers and long time readers) we thought it important to take a moment ask you to mind the numbers, and take care of business. Mind the Numbers - We often get comments on posts that are several years old, sometimes without folks realizing that this is not new news.( In fact, one of our most active threads [...]

Just a Thought – Billboards Are a Big, Bad Blight (Click Here and Say No Thanks)

Just a Thought  – Billboards Are a Big, Bad Blight (Click Here and Say No Thanks)

The Culver City City Council Agenda for tonight includes the "Hospitality District" that has the potential to pollute the airspace in  Culver City with one of the most toxic things our culture produces - advertising. Action Item A-2, (1) Receive a Presentation and Discuss the Proposed Vision for a “Hospitality & Entertainment District Specific Plan” Affecting Commercial Frontage [...]
